AAPM&R Meets with National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine's Standing Committee

On Monday, September 13, we met with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine's (NASEM) Standing Committee of Medical and Vocational Experts for the Social Security Administration's (SSA) Disability Programs. It's a committee of clinicians and scientists who advice the SSA on medical and vocational issues related to disability. Paul Jett, MD, MBA, FAAPMR, Ballad Health's Medical Director for the Center for Post-COVID Care, and Benjamin Ambramoff, MD, MS, FAAPMR, Penn Medicine's Director of the Post-COVID Assessment and Recovery Clinic and Co-Chair of AAPM&R's Multi-Disciplinary Collaborative, provided insight on our collaborative's work and what our members are seeing in their clinics. Together they focused on the initial patient visits and patient evaluations to paint an accurate picture of how complex this new patient population is, how variable their symptoms may be and how current testing may not adequately capture the effects of Long COVID.
